yes if you swap it all...or just buy a hone over drive>With the synchro in one position, the unit locks up for direct drive. Shift the synchro to the alternate position and the incoming drive shaft drives a custom planetary carrier gear assembly that propels an enveloping ring gear approximately 30% faster. The ring gear drives the rear end pinion gear to reach overdrive speeds.
